ATIBT has declared the existence of its association to the relevant departments of its main office's Prefecture. At an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 31 May 2016, the collective members of the Association voted to replace the association's statutes with the following provisions. Article 1 - NAME The Association's name remains: Association Technique Internationale des Bois Tropicaux. Its acronym remains: ATIBT. Article 2 - DURATION The Association's duration remains unlimited. Article 3 - HEADQUARTERS The Association's headquarters is set at the following address: Jardin Tropical de Paris 45 bis Avenue de la Belle Gabrielle NOGENT-SUR-MARNE (France).

2 Article 4 - PURPOSE MISSION VISION ATIBT contributes to the sustainable and responsible development of the tropical forest-timber sector, from the forests to the market. The Association aims to facilitate effective and innovative cooperation between all stakeholders in order to develop and implement the sustainable and responsible management of tropical forests, so as to increase their long term contribution to development in forest country economies. As such, the Association provides its members with information, training, technical and scientific support, promoting best practices in all sectors of the industry, in particular to ensure the economic viability, social equality and the preservation of forest ecosystems. ATIBT notably represents forest managers and loggers (mainly located in Africa), suppliers of tropical timber products and all other industry players that are involved in responsible forestry. As such, it promotes across global markets the tropical timber that is harvested using responsible practices. Through its actions, ATIBT intends to contribute to the protection and preservation of tropical forests for generations to come, through the promotion of forest concessions that are certified and sustainably managed and protected zone networks. ATIBT is aligned with the market's evolving demand, and its interest in tropical timber products that are legal and/or certified. ATIBT's three main strategic priorities are: The sustainable management of tropical forests, The enhanced processing of timber to achieve higher added value, The improvement of access to world markets, the promotion and development of the market for products made of legal and/or certified tropical timber. Article 5 - ATIBT'S VALUES The values defended by ATIBT are: Responsibility: Compliance with the current legislative and regulatory framework in all producing and consuming countries involved with products made with tropical timber, including (but not limited to) laws relating to sustainable forest management, the environment and labour. Transparency: ATIBT demonstrates both transparent and ethical behaviour, taking into account the expectations of its members and stakeholders of the tropical timber industry. Integrity: ATIBT is an organisation with integrity that condemns all forms of corruption. Respect: ATIBT respects industry players' various views and interests, as this forms the basis of the association's federating nature. Cooperation: ATIBT cooperates with NGOs, academic institutions and public institutions that share the same values and the same goals. Page 2/10

In the event of a tie, the President's vote is decisive Powers of the Board of Directors The Board of Directors is vested with broad powers within the limits of the purpose of the Association and within the boundaries of the resolutions adopted by the General Assembly. It can authorise all acts or operations that do not statutorily fall under the jurisdiction of the Ordinary or Extraordinary General Assemblies. The Board of Directors is notably responsible for: a) The definition of ATIBT's objectives and strategy; b) The implementation of the guidelines approved by the General Assembly; c) The approval of new Members of the Association; d) The exclusion of Members, under the conditions defined in article 10 of these statutes; e) The appointment of Executive Board members, including the Treasurer; f) The appointment of the Managing Director; g) The validation of the President's report and the annual financial statements to be submitted for approval by the General Assembly; h) The validation of reports submitted by the Secretariat; i) The creation of Subsidiary Bodies of the Association (Commissions, Committees, Thematic Working Groups, etc.) (article 8.5 of these statutes); their distribution and the monitoring of their work; j) The handling of complaints and claims (article 11 of these statutes). The Board of Directors authorises the Managing Director to take legal action on behalf of the Association Executive Office The Executive Office is made up of five administrators appointed by the Board of Directors from among its members. The Office must consist of the President of the Board of Directors, the Treasurer and possibly a Vice-President.

The Executive Office meets whenever necessary and by any means. It is convened at the request of the President or three of its members. The Executive Office is, in the name of the Board of Directors, the Executive Secretariat's controlling, guiding and advisory body. Page 7/10

8 8.4 - The Executive Secretariat The Executive Secretariat is the Association's executive body; it consists of all of ATIBT's employees. It is headed by the Director, who acts in accordance with the directives of the Association's bodies. The Director is selected and appointed by the Board of Directors. The Director represents the Association in all acts of civil life. The Director is in charge of leading and supervising the entire staff of the Secretariat, which is recruited according to the needs of the Association and in accordance with the rules defined by the Board for it to successfully carry out its missions. Among other things the Managing Director's missions include: a) Proposing a strategy for the Association to the Board, and the means to implement it; b) Implementing the strategy by deploying activities in accordance with the objectives and guidelines set by the Association; c) Directing the Association's Secretariat; d) Preparing the annual budget for approval by the Board of Directors; e) Preparing the Association's certified annual financial statements; f) Calling on the Executive Office for any decisions involving the Association beyond the current management functions that are in accord with current strategic and budgetary priorities; g) Reporting his actions to the Association's various bodies Subsidiary Bodies (Commissions, Committees, Thematic working groups, etc.) ATIBT's Subsidiary Bodies are created at the initiative of the Board of Directors, according to the needs of the Association. Created upon proposal by the Board of Directors, which determines each body's purpose and duration, they are in charge of assisting, advising and guiding the Board in terms of topics or specific issues that fall within the Association's scope of action. The Board of Directors, which can create as many Subsidiary Bodies as it wishes, can also regulate their operations and define their agenda. These Thematic Working Groups operate autonomously and can consist of: ATIBT Members sector experts that are recognised by ATIBT The Working Groups' conclusions are reported to the Board of Directors by a representative of each Group. This representative is heard by the Board in order to report on the work achieved by the Group he or she represents. The Board of Directors examines the reports and the proposals of each Working Group; it then is free to decide whether or not it will be presented during the General Assembly. Page 8/10

9 Article 9 - FINANCIAL RESOURCES The financial resources necessary for the Association to operate come from various sources: 1. Payments of annual ATIBT membership fees, whose amount is set during the General Assembly, upon proposal by the Board of Directors. Fees are payable by calendar year and payable on or before 31 March of the current year. The first membership fee of a new member can be counted by full quarter according to his or her initial membership date. States and International Organisations are exempt from membership fees. A Member's default of payment of all or part of annual membership fees by the due date justifies, if the Board of Directors deems it appropriate after a formal notice has been issued, the suspension of all or part of the Member's rights or his or her outright exclusion from the Association; 2. Payment of cash donations or voluntary contributions made to the Association by third parties or ATIBT Members (excluding bequests); 3. Direct or indirect subsidies granted to ATIBT; 4. Any resources or compensation arising from projects conducted, completed or implemented by ATIBT, in whole or in part; 5. Any revenues linked to services that are provided or to the organisation of events by the Association, or to the sale of goods or products related to said events; 6. Any other legal financial resources (including bank loans) that could be affected to the Association's operating budget or to projects that the Association carries out. The Secretariat is supported by all of the Association's Members in its search for funding for the implementation of specific projects. Article 10 - REMOVAL OF ASSOCIATION MEMBERS ATIBT membership can be lost due to the: The resignation of a Member, submitted by writing to the Association's Secretariat The dissolution of the entity that is a Member of the Association The exclusion pronounced by the Board of Directors, for one of the following reasons: o a violation of the statutes' clauses, especially non-compliance with Article 7 - "ATIBT Member Responsibilities"; o a serious reason that is detrimental to the moral and material interests of the Association; o a default of payment of all or part of the annual membership fees. The non-collection of said fees during the first quarter justifies the issuance of a formal notice. In the event of a failure to amicably recover the amounts due to ATIBT before 1 May of the current year, the information is transmitted to the Board of Directors, which shall decide whether or not it wishes to exclude the member. Page 9/10

10 Any Member of the Association whose exclusion is pronounced by the Board of Directors may request a review of that decision by the General Assembly of ATIBT Members. He or she must submit his request to the President, so that it is added to the agenda of the next Assembly meeting, provided that this request has been made at least one month prior to the holding of the Assembly. Pending the review of the exclusion decision by the Assembly, as the appeal is not suspensive, the Member excluded by the Board is deprived of all the rights he or she had as an ATIBT member, including that of participation in the various bodies of the Association, or voting. Article 11 - COMPLAINTS AND CLAIMS Any complaints or claims against ATIBT must be sent by standard mail to the Association's Secretariat, which will record it and transmit it to the Board of Directors. Complaints and claims that are deemed relevant by the Board result in a reasoned response from it and the implementation of any corrective measures it deems necessary. Complaints and claims do not suspend execution. Article 12 - FINANCIAL YEAR The financial year begins on 1 January and ends on 31 December each year. Article 13 - COMPANY RULES AND REGULATIONS The Board of Directors may establish one or more company rules and regulations designed to clarify and supplement the Association's operating rules. The Board has sole authority to amend or repeal them. Article 14 - DISSOLUTION OF THE ASSOCIATION ATIBT' dissolution may be decided by the Extraordinary General Assembly, upon proposal by the Board of Directors. One or more amicable liquidators are then appointed by the Assembly, and any assets are then devolved. The Members of the Association cannot be attributed, beyond the return of their potential contributions, any share of the Association's property. Any remaining net assets shall be attributed to one or more associations pursuing similar goals. They will be designated by the Extraordinary General Assembly. Statutes adopted by the Extraordinary General Assembly held on 31 May 2016 in Nantes. Page 10/10
